Agenda

Vetco Electronics

Warren McPherson, President of Vetco Electronics in Bellevue, is our guest speaker. In case you didn’t know, Vetco is an amazing local vendor of electronic parts, Raspberry Pi kits, cables, adapters, wire, tools, and so on. KK7TM says, “If they don’t have it, I probably don’t need it.”

Ham Help

If you don’t know everything about amateur radio yet, that’s OK. As a club, we have a broad spectrum of interests and experiences. Please feel free to ask questions at this part of the meeting.

Access

146.58 MHz FM simplex will be monitored for anyone who needs help finding the site or for access to the building. (Monitoring is done with handhelds, so range is limited.) If you’re running late and are locked out, please call us on the radio. We’ll send someone to let you in.

SECURITY NOTE: Anyone who does not have their own Microsoft badge for unescorted access to Microsoft buildings MUST be escorted into Building 35 and conference room 4561 by a badged MicroHAMS member. Do NOT under any circumstances attempt to “tag” onto or “tailgate” Microsoft employees entering the building. Please congregate about five minutes before the meeting outside the lobby entrance on the south side of the building.

MicroHAMS meetings are open to club members, those interested in joining the club (see club membership policy at http://www.microhams.com), and guests of club members. Others may also attend a club meeting by sending email to the club at least seven days prior to the meeting. Space for guests is limited.

Tim Myers, KK7TM
